... Some famous names involved in the dam's design and construction included Morrison-Knudsen, Henry Kaiser, and the Bechtel Company. At the peak of construction in 1934, more than 5,200 workers swarmed over the site. It’s easy to feel quite puny in the presence of this construction and engineering marvel.
